Supporting Lancashire’s Opposition to Fracking

The Frack Stops Here! – DEMO
As you probably know, at the end of this month Lancashire County Council will be
deciding whether or not to approve the two largest fracking tests ever
contemplated in the UK (you can read about the applications and object here:
http://frack-off.org.uk/sites/land-north-of-preston-new-road/.
This is a pretty huge deal that has implications for every scrap of the UK that
is currently under licence. It also offers us all a great chance to showcase the
strength and solidarity of the of the UK anti-fracking movement by standing with
the people of Lancashire and the North West.

Lancs County Council will be deciding on these applications on Wed 28th and
Thurs 29th January. A demo is being organised on each day outside the County
Hall (Preston) from 9am and your help is needed to make these as BIG as they can
be!

4pm (exact location tbc) on Tuesday 27th January.

It has come to the attention of Frack Free Somerset that three of the licenses in Somerset have been relinquished (and are up for grabs in the new licensing round).
However UK Methane have renewed their PEDL license 227, which covers Ston Easton and numerous areas in the Mendips. This means it is extremely likely they will attempt to submit a planning application over the next few months. We cannot speculate on a timeframe.
We organised public meetings at a number of Mendip towns and villages throughout November to raise awareness of this situation.  We would like to thank everyone who came to these meetings and engaged in discussion about the threat facing the Mendips.  If you attended one of these meetings why not set up a local group to campaign against fracking in the Mendips? Please contact us if you would like help setting up a local group.
